About Orange Regional’s new Outpatient Building and Spagnoli Family Cancer Center
Orange Regional Medical Center is nearing completion of construction on an exciting new 153,000 square foot, five-story Medical Office Building and a 26,000 square-foot, single-story Spagnoli Family Cancer Center at the hospital’s main campus. Orange Regional Medical Center selected Skanska USA as the Construction Management firm for the project. Skanska USA is one of the world’s leading construction groups with vast experience in health care construction.
When open on September 26, the $99 million project will help relocate most outpatient services currently provided at other off-campus locations into new, state-of-the-art buildings on the existing 73-acre hospital campus in Middletown. Both new buildings will be patient-centered healing environments incorporating advanced technology and amenities for patients and families. An additional 800 convenient parking spaces have been added to accommodate patients, doctors and employees. In addition, The ORMC Foundation has funded a Fitness Trail project on the campus with outdoor exercise stations as part of a $3.3 million “The Future is Orange” Campaign which is helping to fund the overall expansion project. The walking and exercise path can be used by patients, families, and staff to promote overall good health. The Foundation also funded the Viewing Garden for Orange Regional’s Infusion patients, located at the entrance of the new Spagnoli Family Cancer Center. The Viewing Garden supports Orange Regional’s healing environment for patients and their families.
The first two floors of the Outpatient Building will house an array of advanced diagnostic medical technology available including:64-Slice Computerized Tomography (CT), 1.5 Tesla Wide-Bore Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Digital X-ray, Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, Positron Emission Tomography, PET/CT and Fluoroscopy. The Women’s Breast Center will feature all 3D Mammography, the most advanced imaging available for breast cancer detection. The Physician Office Building will also feature urgent care, primary care, outpatient laboratory services, and pre-surgical testing. The building will house four outpatient operating rooms, endoscopy services, five procedure rooms, cardiac rehabilitation, a diabetes care center, medical school classrooms, a retail pharmacy, a bistro, and a community health resource center. Floors three to five will be occupied by Orange Regional Medical Group specialty physicians.
The 26,000 square-foot Spagnoli Family Cancer Center will combine existing outpatient cancer therapy services including radiation oncology (True Beam and Rapid Arc Linear Accelerators) and Infusion Therapy, along with oncology exam rooms, Patient Navigators, Clinical Trials, a Healing Boutique, Caring Arts Modalities (Complementary Therapies), and a healing garden. The single-story Spagnoli Family Cancer Center will be attached to the main hospital building.
